Sorry for starting two threads in one day! I know there is another one about uneven supply, but I couldn't find it.
I have been dealing with oversupply and OALD since my milk came in, was block-feeding, and now the right side never seems to get full anymore. Almost every time it was time to feed, both breasts would be full with milk again and firm to the touch. Now only the left one does this, and the right one is still soft.
During letdown, the force on the left side is still great and it will spray out an ounce before slowing! But the force is greatly reduced in the right breast now, and it's letdown only shoots out in a spray for a few seconds. This, I thought, was good. but now I am questioning-
First of all, how can I tell the difference between my supply reducing to what it SHOULD be, or reducing too much? How do I know if it's at a good level now, or if it's drying up in the right side?
Secondly, if it is that the block-feeding is working, why does the left side still get engorged if the right side is leveling out? The left breast is almost always WAY bigger now! ARGH!
